COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Zythos hops! The Irish believe there is a time of the year, halfway between the spring solstice and summer equinox, when fires are lit on the hills to ward off evil influences for the coming year and ensure prosperity. Lá Bealtaine, the festival of White Fire, celebrates the defeat of winter’s adversities and the anticipation of summer’s bounty. Lá Bealtaine is a hoppy American wheat ale, light-colored with generous pine and citrusy American hops.

Honey and lightly copper coloured body with a very thin off-white head. Aroma of grass, perfume, hay, wheat and a lot of yeast/bread. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong grassy and herbal flavours at first that give way to perfume, a touch of grassy hop bitterness and a lot of wheat and yeast flavours that show a subtle complexity coupled with a hint of sugars. Aftertaste shows a mellow herbal and tea-like flavour that has some astringent notes and a hint of bitterness from hops, over top of the light sugars and wheat that are noticeable throughout. Overall, a decent wheat-based ale with a touch more hops than normal, but that isnt saying too much. Nice to sample, but definitely not worth going out of the way for by any means. I sampled this stubby twelve ounce bottle purchased from Liqour Outle in Boonton, New Jersey on 22-December-2015 for US$1,97 sampled at home in Washington on 01-June-2017.

bottle @ House of 1000 Beers / New Kensington PA --- Aroma of malt. Cloudy dark amber color, white head that stays for a full cover, sprays of lace. Taste is full-bodied semi-sweet malt that moves through medium carbonation to a firmly hopped finish. Most curious, because this is nowhere near a Wheat Ale profile, not in looks, not in flavor. Quite average overall.

More like a "Pale Wheat." Big hop flavor with a light wheat body. Great for the spring/summer but do not expect a traditional wheat beer style

Pours nice dark golden color with white head. Pretty strong grassy odor, but pleasant. Like a field of hay. Nice grassy, lemony citrus with a crisp hop bitterness at the end. Medium high carbonation. Different, somewhat unique but not crazy. Well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

smaynard6000 (1163) - Apopka, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2016
Bottle. Pours golden in color with minimal white head. Aroma is citrusy with wheat notes. Flavor is bitter, predominantly hoppy citrus but some wheat as well. Light bodied with lingering bitter hoppy finish. Interesting twist on a wheat ale.

blankboy (7689) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2015
[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a cloudy copper-gold with an average size lasting frothy white head and some lacing. Nice hoppy, wheaty aroma, a bit spicy as well. Flavour of wheat and light spices along with light hops, some fruit and a moderate bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Well done, I liked it.

Draft at Brewery 7/7. Aroma was very mild almost not present. Sweet and easy drinking, not much going on with this one. Ok overall. Didn’t take detailed notes.

Cloudy yellow pour at Pgh beer fest. Slight hoppy citrus aroma, lemon. Taste is tangy with a zesty peppery flavor to it. Light body and medium high carb.
